It’s a proven fact that as we age, our eyelashes get thinner. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. There is an FDA approved product called Latisse that will help your eyelashes become darker, and grow thicker and longer. It only takes four weeks to start seeing results. All you have to do is apply on your top lash line at night, just like liquid eyeliner. The Latisse kit comes with a pair of 30 day applicator brushes. If you stop applying the treatments, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance. It is a very safe product, over 2.5 million kits have been sold, and it has been studied for safety and efficacy. As with all cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, there are some possible side effects: eye redness, itchy eyes or dryness. The number one question we’re asked is about the possiblity of your eye color changing. There is always a possibility of this happening, but the chances are unlikely. Remember not to apply Lattise directly into the eye or on the lower eye lid. The kit is sold for $99 at Colorado Dermatology Institute.
